What exactly is the diffence between a myth and a legend? Find out with these worksheets and handouts. This resource clearly defines the five most common folktale subgenres: fables, fairytales, tall tales, legends, and myths and gives students opportunities to apply what they have learned.

This download includes the following 6 handouts and worksheets:

-Folktale Overview (handout)
-Folktale Subgenre Chart (handout)
-Folktale Subgenre Chart (worksheet)
-Folktale Multiple Choice Quiz
-Folktales I Know (worksheet)
-Folktale Reflection (worksheet)

Please note that definitions for some subgenres (most notably legends and myths) vary slightly. I consulted a variety of reliable sources for the handouts, but my information my not match up perfectly with the information in your school/district curriculum.
